Sonoma County $500 Monthly Checks Still Up For Grabs
There are only a few days left for people in the U.S. to get $500 each month. Those who are eligible in Sonoma County, California, will be able to use this.
They will get payments of $500 every month for two years, but they need to act before time runs out.
The programme, called "The Pathway to Income Equity," was started by the county, the cities of Santa Rosa, Petaluma, and Healdsburg, and a group of community groups.
PathwaySonoma.org accepts submissions through October 31. The two-year trial initiative will aid 305 low-income Sonoma County families.
At the time of the application, there is no need of proof. Instead, those who are chosen will be asked to show proof that they are eligible.
In May of last year, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors gave a little more than $3 million to the pilot programme.
Other funding comes from the cities of Santa Rosa ($1 million), Petaluma ($636,000), and Healdsburg ($250,000), as well as from non-profit organisations.
